Have you noticed that your eyes aren't as good as they used to be? That it takes a bit of focusing to read the small print? That you can't thread a needle as quickly? Unfortunately, it seems to be a fact that our eye sight deteriorates as we age. However, fear not - Natural Factors' Eye Formula is here to slow to inevitable and keep your eye sight as strong as possible!
Eye Factors Formula is a combination of eye supportive nutrients that help to nourish your eyes for optimal performance. Bilberry's active ingredients are a group of flavonoids called anthocyanosides. Anthocyanosides are antioxidants that prevent free radical damage. The most promising research shows that bilberry extract improves nighttime visual acuity, resulting in quicker adjustment to darkness and faster restoration of vision after exposure to glare. Further studies show that bilberry extract also helps those with hemeralopia (day blindness), and the inability to see distinctly in bright light.
Multianthocyanidins is a complex extract of plant flavonoids that are powerful free radical scavengers. Multianthocyanidins are standardized extracts derived from blueberry, cranberry, elderberry, grape, raspberry, strawberry and of course, bilberry.
Eyebright is one of a few select plants that specifically help the eyes. An extract of the whole herb is used and a compress of the decoction will give rapid relief of redness, swelling and visual disturbances in acute and sub-acute eye inflammations. However, eyebright is not just for external use. Although the method of action is unknown, eyebright extract taken internally also benefits the eye.
Carrot Juice Powder is enriched with beta carotene, providing the vitamin A that is essential to the eyes for clear vision.
Rutin is a bioflavonoid which helps the absorption and retention of vitamin C, a key free radical scavenger. Bioflavonoids benefit the vascular-rich eye area and increase resistance to infection.
Quercetin is both a naturally occurring flavonoid and an antioxidant which aids in preventing free radical damage.
Lutein is naturally present in the macula and the lens of the eye where it prevents photo-oxidation.
